Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir 2015

Post coravin. Some notes of coffee and acetone in the nose. Otherwise, similar notes to before for this vintage. — 17 days ago

@Mark Flesher 15! Sorry about that. Last of my 15s

Château Fleur Cardinale

Saint-Émilion Red Bordeaux Blend 2015

A quick taste from the Coravin yields an amazing floral nose. I believe it's its best quality. Opens with bright red cherries, strawberry and a hint of cassis. Nice acidity and structure. I'm going to enjoy this a few years downstream. — a month ago

Horse Heaven Hills Cabernet Sauvignon 2015

Just a taste via Coravin. Needed a lot of air for the fruit to come out. Very tannic and rough. Needs time. Hard to evaluate. — 3 days ago

Ceretto

Bricco Asili Barbaresco Nebbiolo 2004

From magnum opened with Coravin. Still a bit closed but very enjoyable. Bouquet opens up beautifully but still a bit restrained on palate. — 21 days ago

Lolita Ranch Zinfandel 2013

After a glass poured from Coravin about a year ago, and then kept in bottle, this one has some rather serious longevity, this one was initially all about mint, herb spices, and green pepper with a strong black pepper finish. As this one sat in the glass, much more of a ripe, red fruit emerged. This one is way better with food than without. I'd easily say that this one is a 93 with food, but without food I think that a clove and kind of an herbal note kind of takes over this wine and lowers the rating. I think this wine will integrate further over the next few years, and really is still quite stiff on the finish. — a month ago

@TheSkip I was actually quite impressed myself. Didn't really know what to think since there are mixed reviews about how long an accessed bottle will keep. Definitely glad it held, and if anything was still fairly restrained

Stonegate

Reserve Wappo Vineyard Petite Verdot 2004

Delicious mellow dark 🍒 flavor and vanilla hints of sweetness. Love this wine. And user error with the Coravin so guess have to drink the whole thing — 16 days ago

Tenuta Le Velette

Calanco Umbria Sangiovese 2012

Sangiovese blend served from Coravin. Nice nose of black cherry and a hint of clove and sweet tobacco. On the palate is a darker wine, but very fruit forward. Red licorice, overripe raspberry and black cherry. Nice acidity up front. This wine did get a little more dense in the middle, and the finish had a little bit of grit, darker licorice, black cherry and milder black pepper spice. Brought home by my brother-in-law after his visit to this winery in Italy, and now the heat is on to find more as this is my last one! — a month ago

Post coravin. Held up very well. Beautiful laser focused fruit. A touch lean reflecting the vintage. — 2 months ago
